Gaslight Pizza and Grill in Huntingburg, Indiana serves amazing sandwiches. It’s a nondescript storefront that would never make you think “excellent food is made here” but let me tell you something: I cannot wait to go back.
We were beyond hungry. Watching one amazing-looking sandwich and pizza coming out of the kitchen at this Dubois County restaurant while we were deciding was almost torture.
Gaslight Pizza and Grill in Huntingburg, Indiana
Opened as the Victory Theater in 1942, then becoming Gaslight Restaurant and Theater in 1971, and now known as Gaslight Pizza and Grill, this amazing restaurant has really made a name for itself. Known for mouthwatering pizza, we somehow resisted the impulse to get pizza, and man oh man do I love pizza, and instead decided to try one of the unique sandwiches on the menu.
After seeing so many sandwiches pass us by and head to other tables, we could tell by looking at them that they would be good. The trouble was choosing which one.
Our boys easily decided on a Grilled Cheese Sandwich (for Kid #2, age 4) and the Catfish Sandwich (for Kid 1, age 8). They both looked really good–and that fish sandwich was an actual fillet. That was nice to see (and he certainly enjoyed it). But what about us? We had to get something different from each other.
Pizza, Sandwiches, and Homemade Chips
We weighed our options carefully. There was a hand-cut and hand-breaded pork tenderloin sandwich on the menu. That was tempting but I didn’t order it. Surprised, are you?
The Stromboli, Reuben Sandwich, and the Italian Submarine (topped with their special sauce) were certainly tempting. But in the end, my husband went with the Johnny Dart, a corned beef and pepper jack cheese creation that’s also available in pizza form.
As for me, it was The Sicilian all the way. I couldn’t resist the temptation of Ham, Bacon, Pepperoni, Sauerkraut, Swiss, and Mozzarella Cheese topped with a special sauce. Served with homemade chips, it was absolutely fantastic. That sandwich ranks as one of the best that I have ever had. My goodness.
I’ve heard that they make an incredible chicken Alfredo pizza that uses their own homemade Alfredo sauce. It looks like I may have to make a return trip–and like you will need to make a first trip! I still get cravings for the amazing sandwich and homemade chips I had at Gaslight Pizza and Grill in Huntingburg, Indiana.
